I upgraded yesterday and as long as I do simple tasks like changing a file size I'm good. As soon as I start to get complicated, ie: changing the color in a duotone or adding an effect to a layer, it crashes. I can't get my work done!

At least you can do something - I can't even import my images into the manager - damn thing crashes everytime. My only alternative is to import the 1500 event folders individually!!!!!!!!!!! total waste of time and money. I'm sure its somehow my fault though, that's adobe's usual reply. After all, who could possibly expect their $100 program to do something that windows or mac computers can do for free, like make an image catalog that works? I bought this program for my wife who has no interest in learning more advanced photo editing software (you know, stuff that works, like Affinity Photo). I should have just spared myself the aggravation and half the money and bought her a training course on a working piece of software......Oh and before Adobe tells me to get a more powerful computer, I'm unsuccessfully running it on a AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with 32 GB Ram, 512 GB SSD (primary drive), 2 TB Seagate Barracuda (storage) with a Nvidia GTX 1660 Super.................total garbage and no response from adobe........

Photoshop 2020 constantly crashes. I have to take extra steps and saving layered PSDs, so I don't lose my work, before flattneing it to a JPEG. This is seriously unacceptable. The program literally crashes 20 times a day. If deleting the preferences isn't working for anyone, then I'm not going to even bother. Adobe programmers need to create a patch STAT and stop wasting all of their customers' precious time.

YOU did or didn't delete preferences? Forget about 'everyone else'.

Can't do anything at all, yes I have deleted and reinstalled the app and deleted preferences, this thing worked fine before I decided on the morally right thing to do and pay for it.  hmmmmm..... Life!

I have just purchased a subscription and can't even open PS2020 it just freezes and says not responding so I am unable to use it.

Is it worth trashing the preferences if I've never opened a file in it, can't get that far.

OS X 10.15

 

I've had to go back to Affinity for my work today PS Is unusable 🤬

Crashing gets worse and worse. First it was after working in my file for awhile, and crashed when I tried to do a complext action. I have done the preferences suggestion and now can't even get to step #2 in the simplest file. No other apps open. Hard reboot. No external drives. How can I go back to last version of Photoshop?
